Welch is going to be very nasty campaign it's people don't realize that Obama was very nasty with Hillary Clinton I mean to -- I know that clintons have friends of mine that was.
Will probably the -- -- it was a nasty -- race ever run they say it made the Republicans.
The way they're going at each other now was like peanuts by comparison.
Obama was very very nasty to Hillary Clinton -- to a point where I was almost surprised that she took the position she took.
When you take a look at Americans have -- and there are those who believe that.
This president is one that is content to manage what he perceives as a decline in America -- do you believe that's.
We are not respected like we once -- we are not to great exception we are not to great.

As an example unemployment they said it went down a little bit but it really didn't all it is is numbers.
When people stop looking for a job that they come off the rolls the real numbers probably 121%.
They said it was eight point 2%.
Not eight point eight point two -- -- But if you -- to people back to can't find jobs that have given up you're talking about eighteen to 21%.
At some point people feel so dispirited.
That they checked out and what does that do to.
The culture and of itself what you were -- -- is a great word because that's really what it is they are dispirited they've lost confidence in themselves and in the country.
I think they can come back with the proper leadership I know they can come back.
-- gallon optimistic person.
So what -- Internet options -- where does that come from.
Well I believe in myself I believe in the greatness of this country I believe that we're eventually going to get it right we have tremendous potential in this country but we have to know what we're doing right now we don't know what we're doing.
